Ask Your Audience, is an assignment that requires you to create a post based on an image (ideally one that you wish to more about and preferably one you took) and then ask an engaging enough question that invites your readers to provide you with an answer and/or additional information on the subject.


1.) Post a photo of something that you don't know much about (your own original photo is preferred, it does not matter when it was taken).
2.) Give some background information about the photo (or other related information to help them out identifying whatever it is you posted).
3.) Ask your viewers in your own way to get more information on the subject matter for you (this will be the hardest part of the whole assignment).

Don't forget to thank your viewers when you're done, either!

Good luck and have fun!
